Penny Black Saturday Challenge - GDT Card!

This is my last card as a guest designer for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge...I can't believe how quickly the month has gone! The theme this week is:

'Pearls & Lace'

And there are two fabby prizes up for grabs:

Fantastic Ribbons - 4 rolls of the winner's choice


PB Stamps - 15% off Lifetime Discount Voucher

I decided to try something different (well for me anyway), and used my lace (from Wild Orchid Crafts) as a frilly border around my image ('Gifts for You!' by Penny Black). The papers are from the 'Wisteria' pad by BasicGrey, and I distressed the edges with my distressing tool, before adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. I used some small adhesive pearls in all the corners as a finishing touch.

For more inspiration, please pop over and see the stunning creations by the lovely PBSC girls. Thanks so much for having me - I've loved being a guest designer for you...and will be back next week to join in as a challenger again! :0)
